At TCS we are trialling being mostly homework-free for Years 1-6. The only thing students will be required to do is read every night. Students will be given a reader to take home every night in Years 1-4. In Years 5-8, children will be given a book to take home and read one chapter from each night. They will discuss their book in class with friends.
In Years 7-8 students will be given one inquiry project per term. In Years 9-10 students will be given assignments to complete and encouraged to follow a study regime.
If parents want to work on skills at home, they are welcome to select from the links below. We encourage this to not be a time-consuming experience because we want our children to be children and enjoy their time relaxing, exploring and creating after school.
